If we had to answer it in one sentence: we built the new Sqetch to be the most useful online platform for fashion production available. Everyone who has ever tried creating fashion knows that getting ideas from the drawing desk to the market is a long endeavour of courage. Finding the right manufacturers, suppliers, and service providers to set up a supply chain that meets each need can be a tiresome, drawn-out, and expensive process, rooted in an enormous and disconnected worldwide industry.
It was from the ambitious intent to bridge this disconnection that Sqetch was born in Berlin. We have been working to bring together fashion players from all corners of the world to overcome these obstacles to production and create more efficient pathways for the fashion industry as a whole.
Throughout our journey, we have made many strides towards that goal, and among those natural hits and misses of any worthwhile search, we have learned a lot.
For the last few years, we have gathered those learnings, grown our team, and developed a new and improved Sqetch equipped to take that mission further!
Now, we want to make it as easy as possible for anyone, and we really do mean anyone, to roll out their fashion design ideas by providing a beautiful and (very) time-saving way of turning projects into products.

For Fashion Brands
Yes, to start using the Sqetch services, you need an account.
Although Sqetch offers a great way to connect with apparel manufacturers, brands must take into account that choosing a specific manufacturer is their own responsibility. Therefore, Sqetch highly recommends brands to do due diligence.
•Visit a clothing manufacturer or supplier before booking an order.
•Check references of clothing manufacturers and suppliers before you start to work together.
•Ask if they have experience with your product(s) or similar type of brands.
•Confirm all terms of contract, make sure all costs and responsibilities are clearly set out.
Finding the right Manufacturer can be overly complex.
Depending on the product you would like to create, it’s important to go through the manufacturers’ profiles suggested on the platform, to decide the ones that best meet your needs.
Please keep in mind that it is essential to check references, professionalism and consult their work through external tools such as websites, social media and brochures.
Don’t go in alone. With our shop, we support sustainable development through a range of e-learning resources, platforms, workshops, showcases, and custom solutions based on your needs.

At first, our recommendation is to become a trusted partner, through Gold, Silver, or Bronze memberships, as they rank higher in the platform’s list.
In addition, manufacturers should pay attention to the following common mistakes:
•Information is not clear or not complete
•The profile is empty or doesn’t look professional.
• The response time is too long
It’s essential that manufacturers understand that the more professional and clear their profile is, the bigger chances they have to draw attention from the brands.
Learn from the common questions of your customers, and always keep your profile complete and up-to-date.

Due to the matchmaking process of the platform, as a manufacturer, you are not able to look for brands. However, you are visible to thousands of brands looking for partners to work with. The better you describe your services and your profile looks, the higher the chances are that suitable buyers will come back to you
For that reason, we've prepared small, but powerful tips for you to stand out and be unbeatable on the platform.
